Replace the smiley with "HGCS"

Not Enough Room. 

 

 

What if you use lower case?  :2funny:

 

What about in Morse Code?

Dang.  We be bad geocachers, Kirbydox and me.  We started a firestorm.  :knuppel2:

 

Wow. Who thought a casual conversation would stir up things so much.  :tinfoil:  I will repeat what Bert said, "Just kicking around the option, that's all.  I don't own a one and the CO's might not go along with it."  

 

I thought it would be a good idea because frankly some of the containers have been out there for more than 4 years and probably need to be redone anyway. (This was also the case on the CLAPS series and while Cachestacker was initially resistant to the idea, he eventually agreed and it has been a great refresher for the area and an easy way to make sure all the containers are new and ready for finders.)  

 

I think the Huge Smile is a great series. I love George Bush Park and I love to find caches there. It doesn't matter to me if the series is refreshed and maintained or if something new is put in it's place. I DO think everyone should experience caching in GBP. It can be a lot of fun, especially if you go in a mash-up with a bunch of other cachers.  O0

I know.  Same with Cullen and Bear Creek parks.  Grew up riding my bike out there with my team and friends training all summer long.  We'd stop for blackberries when they were ripe though.  Those thorns are why I won't cache in a dress in BCP or GBP...

Nightmares tonight for sure now.

 

Mankini, Monokini, Nokini, Speedo.  3 things noONE should ever see on a man. Hell a speedo just proves you dont JUST lie about how big a fish you caught. mtp

Wha? I can name a handful of men who rock a Speedo...& I do appreciate it  ^-^

 

ANYWAY - Considering I just started caching at the end of June...I haven't even touched this!

 

I vote an early Jan. mash-up to knock it out; after all the holidays are behind us so we can stomp those thorns & take names!

We have never been caching at GBP.  We were warned of the thorns, bushes to whack, wild pigs, snakes - etcetera.  I haven't done a group cache in a while and would be happy to attend.  Just let me know if it is kid friendly or if I should get a sitter.  If Mrs. D isn't into the smile series then maybe Rs 4&5 can hang with her!

the smiley probably isn't kid friendly, but i'd let someone else who has done it confirm that one.  will take hours to get through

It depends on if you're wanting to bring the kids back out, too. If that's the case, I'd say leave anyone under 12 or 13 at home (or anyplace other than GBP).

The winter is better than the summer.  It is a LOT of walking and if it is even a little hot, you can barely carry enough water - OH!  On that thought and this has been proven.  If one of the group runs out of water, it pretty much puts the rest of the troop in a must share predicament.  On one adventure a large group of us did TEXAS and one member was not in the best of shape and drank all of their water 1/3 of the way through.  As the march progressed the temperature began to climb and I gave up 3 bottles of water before the fellow left the trail to return with 2 other cachers on the Noble Road.  By the time we finished, it was over 11 miles and I was literally staggering.  The 3 bottles I gave up would have prevented that - and others gave up water also.  Bottom line is the group is only as strong as the weakest link, something to consider on the 4 cache loop trip too.

I am not the mom to Hansel or Gretel so I am not trying to leave them anywhere!  Also - none are even close to 12 so I guess we need a sitter!  You guys don't make this sound like much fun, honestly.  So when is this death march/party getting started?

It is a LOT of fun, solo or with a group.  If you do the Noble trail, you walk a trail.  TEXAS and Big Smile = no trails.

I remember a mother who used to cache with her kid in a stroller.

My son in law bought an off road stroller for our grandson so I could take him with me on occasion. Worked great in the woods. That is until I got him a good dose of PI and his mother cut me off from taking him anymore. Dang kill joy. He survived it well.
